While it is possible tiat this budlddmg may be completed by the last of

About December, 189 5, 0r January 1696, Mir. David Kelley, of this 
city, representing the Colorado Producers‘ Marble Company and the Beulah 
Marble Company, of this city, visited the Releerehains architest's office 
and presented written statements regarding the marble of this State in 
quarries owned by said companies,with a view to the use of their marble in 
the U.S.Mint builéing,in this city, painting very clowing pictures of the 
present and future of their marble, ranking their stone with the marble 

= t and Ttaly, and stating that it had been accepted by a ecommis~ 
| 2. am . the. State Capitol building,in this city, after the closest 
nd most careful scrutiny as to pieces, color,quelity,ete. Cop 
te no doubt on file in your office. |

it proper to state to you that from what I 6an learn from pédple here an 
the Work now being done by said marble compariiot, the prospects of getting 
out this material in suffietent quant ities ‘and of a stitable quality for 

this work,without involving graat delay in the equtnien of the build< 
ing, do not appear to be very promial 

Mr.Geddes, of the firm of yddes and Seeres, granite dealers 
and quarry owners, of thie city, stated that the companies tamed have been 
several years furnishing and placing the marble in the Oapitol here which 
should have been completed lomg age, the detay being due to the fact 

that the quarries wére not well openod, 

Mr McIntire, formerly city building inspector and at one time 
city engineer here, states that the watbhe in said companies’ quarries 
is broken in very small pieces and that he thinks the quarries cannat. be 
depended upon to furnish any great amount of marble in such dimensions 
as would be desired for exterior facing, atc.s of the Mint building and 
that the quality generally is not the best. 

I have visited the Capitol and consulted with the oem 

ent, who is an architect, and he informs me that the above, named marble 

ee than two years at work on the marble for that 
Lp aciing asihipr Brogressing vory oicehy with the wry Shah 60

they ibdcte 

Sorbing the water and dirtsand will soon show wear. 
I mike this statement to prevent the possibility of specifying 
that local marble must be used in tho Mint building,in this 

ity, as } 

it appears from the progress of tho work in the Capitol that it 


Pes St, . 
Would at least require several years to furnish the stone necessary for 

che Mint of suitable Colorado marble. The above named companies ares, I 

understand, the best and most capable marble companies of this State, al~ 
though I learn that there is & white marble quarried in the northern part 
of the State of which I have been unable to learm a great doal as to the 
quality er quantity. None of the marble quarries.have, I ap told, been 
sufficiently Opsned up at the present time to show definitely the quality 

| or quantity of the marble they may produee.

whether there js any special reagon for placing thimbles in flues at any 

certain height above the floors and whether Btn0" above basement floor »

in the ‘clear are 10!- 6m in basement 251-0" An first. story and 21'@ in 
Second story of the U. re Mint building here and the thimbles and flues 
ore for the service of machine and blacksmith shop in basement, the whiten 
ing room annealing ernest and nelting-oon in first story and the refinery 
laboratory and assayer's rooms im second story « 
The specification states that thimbles in the flues shell be placed ~ 

where directed and I want some information fron some Mint officials be- 
fore IT give instructions on that point. De you think 21-0" of terra cotta 
flue lining below the thimbles in the brick chtemey 46 sufficient? The éraw
